Clam Shell Guide Wire Introducer

Case ID:
c14511
Disclosure Date:
12/26/2016
Description:
The current invention, a clamshell wire introducer (the clamshell), addresses the deficiencies of currently available introducers.  The device is similar in shape to standard wire introducers, but is split along the ventral surface of the long axis. The device is then used in the same manner as any other wire introducer.  After wire insertion, the device is withdrawn from the hemostatic valve and manual pressure released, allowing the clamshell to open, permitting the device to be retrieved off the wire in a friction-free fashion.
